5 Shifts to Health Wealth and Happiness
5 Shifts To Ultimate Health, Wealth and Happiness
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and
be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
(3 Jn 2:2)
It has been over 10 years ago that I walked away from a successful positioning in the United Pentecostal Church. I had filled many positions and had reached the highest level of licensing, I was an ordained minister. I left it all because I wasn’t happy nor was my family.
I am sharing this with you today because I am seeing many ministers and church goers being in exactly the same place I had found myself.
I ask you today, how should we live our lives so that we can be healthy and happy in Christ and have it all? The answer to this question has become my life long pursuit.
I have found that there are 5 shifts that most people need to make in order to have health, wealth and happiness.
Truthfully Release The Past.
Find your rightful place in your belief system, your empowering belief system. Release completely all limiting beliefs.
Perhaps we think, “If I lose 10 more pounds, then I will be happy.” Or “When I get that new job, then I will be successful.” In reality, once get those things, then we want a little more…
“….with God all things are possible.” – Jesus (Mathew 19:26)
Childhood experiences and expectations from family and/or society have helped us develop our past mindsets. Not all of them are bad, but many are not empowering. The organization that I was a big part of is not bad in of itself, it was bad for me. It did not allow me to pursue the dream that God had given me. I released it all and walked forward. Can you???
2. Be Positive About Your Current Life.
All that we have is the current moment.
Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.
I am telling you that the key to success is to switch off the worry! Like attracts like. In other words, when you worry, you attract more worrisome things into your life.
3. Create Your Reality.
Most of us never get to that stillness, the peace, joy and righteousness of Christ. The place in our lives that allows us to know what we are really supposed to be doing in life. We keep doing the same thing because that is what we are comfortable with, even though it makes us miserable. We need to KNOW the desires of our hearts and go wholeheartedly in that direction!
“A double-minded man is unstable in all his ways”
4. Look Good.
We live currently in physical world and like attracts like. BE the person that you know God would want you to be. Know your identity in Christ and live in that Healthy, Wealthy, and Happy format! You may need a makeover, the old you is not working anymore. Remember our perspectives create our reality in Christ. If your perspectives are changing, be ready for the reality to change as well.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
What this means: You are created in the image of God, and God doesn’t make junk! Like a snowflake, every person is unique. No two are the same. God sees you as a masterpiece; and when you look in the mirror, He wants you to “know that full well.” Try this beauty tip: Every morning when you look in the mirror, say Psalm 139:14 and smile. You might even tape the verse on your mirror as a reminder!
5. Take Care Of Yourself.
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
(1 Cor 6:19-20)
Our emotional state and well-being is important to our Creator. Our emotions are direct result of how we treat our mind and body. When we treat our mind and body well, properly nourished, well rested, fit and filled with glory, our emotions will be positive! We fill happy and joyful.
When we treat ourselves like we are the last thing on the agenda, we will get stressed out and turn negative in time. Everything about the Kingdom of God within us is linked together with everything in our life.
Make a change… take a risk… It is the design of the New Birth plan, Complete change! Change toward the ultimate You! The ultimate Healthy You! The Wealthy You! The Happy You!
Moreover, when God gives any man wealth and possessions, and enables him to enjoy them, to accept his lot and be happy in his work–this is a gift of God.
